Shipping Method: Rate Table By Item Count

When you manage this shipping method, you have the standard shipping method settings, as well as a rate table to manage.

Setting Name Description
Name This is the language friendly name that you'll see in the shipping methods list, and your customers will also see this value in the checkout, receipt, and e-mail notifications.
Highlight Color By default, this value will be "None" but if selected, it will highlight this order in the order manager, when the customer chooses this shipping method during checkout.
Adjust Price By In addition to the rate table below, you can specify an amount to add or remove from the total shipping rate.  This value can either be a currency value, or percentage, depending on the amount type you choose.  If you enter a negative value, the amount will be deducted from the shipping rate.
Shipping Zone Choose the shipping zone that this method will be used with.  

When populating the rate table, your first entry should have a quantity of 1 for most stores.  This ensures that if there is only one line item, there's a shipping rate charged.  From there, you should determine at which quantity the rate should increase.  

In addition to adding rates, you can delete existing rates.  You are not able to edit rates at this time.

Setting Name Description
Item Count Enter the quantity of line items for which you want to charge shipping.
Charge This is the currency amount that would be the shipping rate charged for the quantity specified above.  This value should match the store's currency settings, such as $12.34.
